Vénasque Canyon


FR |


Source: Wim Willems

We drive here along the D177 to Gordes. Count on several kilometers of climbing. But the scenery is beautiful. The road winds like a snake through a gorge: the Gorges de Venasque.
Once out of the canyon we arrive at the plateau. We pass some pastures and a few farms. Then we drive through the garrigues again.
About two kilometers past the farms we arrive at a crossroads. We are here at the Col des Trois Termes at 574 meters altitude.
After a break we continue. The road first slightly descends and then descends steeply down into a new valley, that of the Sénancole. In the distance we can already see the abbey. After a hairpin turn to the left, you arrive at the gates of the abbey.
